The Teleprompter President

From today's Politico:

Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual – not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events large and small.

After the teleprompter malfunctioned a few times last summer and Obama delivered some less-than-soaring speeches, reports surfaced that he was training to wean himself off of the device while on vacation in Hawaii. But no luck.

Hm.  I wonder what the left would have had to say about the IQ's (and preparedness) of, say, Presidents Reagan and GWB if they had exhibited such utter dependence on teleprompters.
